The new trailer for Netflix’s Santa Clarita Diet has landed – and it promises lots of bloody fun. Literally.
The show stars Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant as a married couple who find their lives transformed, when she becomes a zombie. And so they decide to work together to keep their marriage going, and her in a steady supply of fresh food.
“I like the way I feel,” says Barrymore’s Sheila. “You eat people!” exclaims Olyphant’s Joel. “I know,” comes the reply. “It’s just that I’m so much more confident.”
All episodes are released on Netflix on 3rd February.

The New Year. A time for people to make resolutions, attempt to change their lifestyle habits and talk about diets. The only diet we’re interested in, though, is the Santa Clarita Diet.
The new Netflix comedy series stars Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant as a married couple, who find their lives take an unexpected direction, when Barrymore’s Sheila Hammond undergoes a dramatic change and discovers a new secret to looking and feeling better than ever. It’s organic, it’s high in protein and involves… eating whoever you want?
Take a closer look at these new posters and stills and it’s not hard to work out the nasty trick to the Santa Clarita Diet. A messy, natural… meaty alternative to the norm.
The whole show lands on Netflix on Friday 3rd February.

Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant to star in Netflix’s Santa Clarita Diet
19th March 2016
Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant are on their way to Netflix, with a new comedy series, Santa Clarita Diet.
The show, written by Better Off Ted’s Victor Fresco, is a single-camera show and follows husband and wife Joel and Sheila, who are estate agents going through the motions of unhappy lives in the titular Los Angeles suburb, until she goes through a “dramatic change that sends both of their lives down a road of death and destruction … but in a good way”.
The show has been picked up straight to series, with Fresco, Barrymore, Olyphant, Kapital Entertainment’s Aaron Kaplan, Tracy Katsky, Chris Miller and Ember Truesdell all serving as exec producers. Nancy Juvonen is a producer.
Fresco commented: “The genius of casting Timothy and Drew, combined with my comedic… oh wait, that’s Cindy’s quote. I agree with what Cindy is about to say.”
“The genius casting of Timothy and Drew combined with Victor’s unique comedic sensibility will delight, and definitely surprise, our members around the world,” added Cindy Holland, Netflix vice president of original content.
The move to Netflix follows a strong run on the small screen for Olyphant, who has starred in and produced FX’s series Justified for the last six seasons, which is based on Elmore Leonard’s short story Fire in the Hole. Olyphant was nominated for an Emmy for his lead role as US Marshal Raylan Givens.
Last year, he also recurred on the new FOX comedy series The Grinder opposite Rob Lowe, which earned him the award for Guest Actor in a Comedy Series at the 2016 Critics Choice Awards.
For Drew Barrymore, though, this marks a rare TV role: this is her first regular television gig since 2000 Malibu Road way back in 1992 and only the second in her career, if you include the repeated voicing of character Jillian Russell on Family Guy between 2005 and 2013.
